TEVAS, SANDALS, or OLD TENNIS SHOES. You will be walking on the river banks and foot protection is necessary. Should you choose to swim or wade, the river bottom can have unseen rocks or sticks. SWEATER and LIGHT WATER RESISTANT JACKET. (Synthetic, fleece and wool materials generally provide warmth even when wet) Afternoon showers are common and temperatures can vary throughout the day.

You may also have the opportunity to photograph wildlife including muledeer, elk and eagles. You may put your wallets and other valuables in one of our dry bags on the raft if you wish. Try to bring as few valuables as possible for we cannot be responsible for them. Rafting on the Colorado River from Pump House to Two Bridges. 🛶🤙🏻

Mills Lake Hike #1 Hike in Colorado

Needs a location

Contact Jason[masked] We Will meet at State Highway 26, Golden, CO 80401 Mammoth lot! We will carpool! $5 donation for event. It is $20 a car to enter park. The hike to Mills Lake begins from the Glacier Gorge Trailhead, located on Bear Lake Road almost 8 miles from the turn-off at Highway 36. Due to the extreme popularity of the Bear Lake Road area you may want to consider using the free park shuttle to access the trailhead during peak tourist season. Roughly one-quarter of a mile from the parking area, just after crossing Chaos Creek, the trail briefly converges with the Glacier Creek Trail. After walking a very short distance the Glacier Creek Trail splits off to the right and heads toward Bear Lake. To continue on towards Mills Lake hikers should turn left at this junction. alberta-fallsAt just over eight-tenths of a mile hikers will reach Alberta Falls, one of the more popular hiking destinations in the park. This scenic 30-foot waterfall thunders down a small gorge on Glacier Creek, and is named after Alberta Sprague, the wife of Abner Sprague, one of the original settlers in the Estes Park area. The next section of trail, between Alberta Falls and Mills Junction, was rehabilitated by the National Park Service and the Rocky Mountain Conservancy as part of a major, multi-year project that was completed in 2012. At 1.6 miles hikers will arrive at the North Longs Peak Trail junction. To continue on towards your destination hikers should turn right here. About a half-mile further up the trail you'll reach Mills Junction. Straight ahead is the Loch Vale Trail which leads to The Loch and Sky Pond, while the side trail branching off to the right leads up to Lake Haiyaha. As part of the same trail rehabilitation project, this unimproved route was also upgraded in an effort to make it safer and easier to follow as it travels towards the lake. To continue on towards Mills Lake hikers should turn left at this junction. After a short distance the trail crosses over Vale Brook, at which point you'll enter the majestic Glacier Gorge. At 2.4 miles you'll cross over Glacier Creek. Just before crossing the footbridge you might notice a faint social trail on your right. After walking roughly 40 yards along this path you'll reach the base of a small waterfall known as Glacier Falls. At just over 2.6 miles hikers will reach the foot of Mills Lake, a beautiful subalpine lake nestled just below Half Mountain. From its eastern shore, looking from left to right, you'll have outstanding views of the Keyboard of the Winds, 13,497-foot Pagoda Mountain, 13,579-foot Chiefs Head Peak and 12,668-foot Thatchtop Mountain. A fairly large rocky area along the edge of the lake makes this a great location for a picnic.-reference http://www.rockymountainhikingtrails.com/mills-lake.htm
